        Is it already December? How is that even possible? It feels like it was just the beginning of the semester, and now finals are upon us. To take a break from all the stress those cause, here’s what I’m up to this December! I’m currently…
        Wishing that Christmas, and Christmas break, lasted longer and isn’t going to go by as quickly as I know it will. Even though it’s barely started, I know that the Christmas season will fly past, and it’s my favorite time of year so I want it to last longer!!! I wish it could last all year long, but then it wouldn’t really be special anymore I suppose. Still, I hope it doesn’t fly too quickly!

        I’m currently remembering all of the blessings that God has given me over this past year. As 2015 quickly comes to a close, I’m really realizing just how great this year has really been, and for that, I’m so thankful. I know that on New Year’s Eve I will have so many wonderful blessings to look back on! Isn’t that the best way to bring in the New Year?! And I'm doing my Thankfulness Jar again, so I will have lots of blessing filled papers to read!

        I’m currently wrapping presents! I know, that’s pretty much a given. So, most recently, I wrapped a secret Santa gift for one of the girls on my hall, who I absolutely love, and who really loved my gift! The limit was $10, so I couldn’t do too much, but I got her a nail polish because she loves to paint her nails, a mug because she loves tea and I painted her initial on it, and then I filled it with chocolate. That’s the most recent present I wrapped—I’m a little behind on my shopping—and I was so glad she loved it as much as she did!

        I’m currently baking… nothing! At the moment anyway. But just wait, in a couple of weeks, I’ll be baking Christmas cookies galore! At my house, we make TONS of cookies for Christmas, such as sugar cookies—a staple for us because of my father’s grandmother’s recipe that was passed down to us—some type of peppermint cookies or bark, something chocolate, just to name a few. We make a few different things every year, but the sugar cookies are always the same. So I may not currently be baking anything, but I will be in cookie heaven soon!

        And lastly, I’m currently decorating the door to my dorm room. We’re having a door decorating contest, and the winner gets a gift card, so I pretty much had to participate. I’m not entirely sure the plan for the decorations yet—my roommate and I are still working out a design—but it’s going to be awesome. I know that for sure. And just a couple of days ago while I was home for thanksgiving break I decorated my room, and let me tell you, it is all decked out for Christmas. I have a tree covered in red and gold ribbon and ornaments, red and gold ornaments strung on ribbon draped on the edges of my bookshelves, and gold snowflakes hanging from my ceiling. I’m also contemplating putting up more decorations on my walls since they are kind of bare at the moment. I’m really into Christmas and decorations, can’t you tell?

        So, that’s what I’m currently up to this wonderful month of December!
        Merry Christmas!!!
